FOSSILISED SCALLOP SHELLS

Gigantopecten restitunensis

This is a beautiful slab of fossilised scallop shells from the Miocene period. The three-dimensional quality of the piece makes for a very aesthetic display piece. Scallop shells are the traditional emblem of St. James and pilgrims in medieval times often carried them to signify their devotion.
